Local from Santo Domingo

Un this park you always can find good vibes. Artist, kind people, good coffee shops. It's an amaizing place.

I have a soft spot for public squares in Latin America--places where people of all ages meet up, shoot the breeze for a while, feed the pigeons, eat a churro (or elote or cotton candy or....), and watch little kids in big sneakers chase each other around. Parque Colon is all this plus a historic cathedral, street performers, tour guides, shoe shining kids, and a few dogs lounging under the shade of a tree. It's a a perfect to people watch--El Conde Restaurant, on the northwest corner of the park is a prime spot to sit back with a cafe con leche and just watch the world go by.

This is in front of the Hard Rock Cafe on the Conde. The food at any of the restaurants is good. Get your shoes shined here for a buck. Very tourist centric.
